Get your tickets when you roll into town. Particularly if it's the next day. We got there early today and our tour time was 2:30. So keeping the kids entertained was tricky. Jr Ranger program was fun and the video in the museum was mildly entertaining. (Not "fun". Just informative.) LOTS of talk from the very passionate and kind guide on our tour of cliff palace. But if you've got a kid with autism, spd, ADHD, etc. bring a favored activity in a backpack for the tour. Lots of standing and listening at a high elevation and "be quiet" "don't touch that"...for 20+ minutes at a time. (Implied. Not stated. And rightfully so. Being respectful was a top priority!) We desperately needed a book or drawing pad for him. He handled the ladder climbing and heights with ease. Also, I hate heights so traveling back down to the base was an hour of genuine torture for my irrational brain. I'm still not back to normal after 5 hours.
Contact lens wearers may want eye drops. Not sold in shops and definitely needed.
Highly recommend. What a rich, fascinating piece of history!!

Oh and the pool is the size of a postage stamp. And any noise that sounds like kids having fun is amplified by 100. Very clean. Very orderly pool.

Probably the cleanest Hampton I've ever stayed in. But paper thin walls. We could hear the tv next door AND across the hall.
